Shortly after the success of the Anna Dello Russo collection, H&M is gearing up for the release of its latest- and highly anticipated- collaboration, to hit shelves November 15. Belgian fashion house Maison Martin Margiela has offered the high street giant a slice of its unique aesthetic, best recognised for exaggerated silhouettes, masculine tailoring and continuously avant-garde design. I for one am very excited. I’ve already selected the accompaniments of a certain white coat. But what do you think?
Firstly, if you have not yet seen Beyoncé’s Tumblr, then hop to it over yonder! Beyoncé… amazing. So upon perusing said Tumblr I found the above image of the goddess herself wearing a pretty groovy body chain. Body chains are no revalation but they have made a serious come back in mainstream fashion as of late, which presented me with a good opportunity for a DIY moment.
Well, I am officially unable to store all of my shoes in my closet. I have secretly been waiting for the moment where I need to build a great wall of shoes and that time certainly came this week when I purchased some amazing Scanlan & Theordore boots. I wasn’t meant to be shopping, but when I passed them by and our gazes met, I knew it; my lust was powerless to their lure. Ten minutes later, we were an item. For our first date I took them to dinner and the Katy Perry movie. I am confident that this whilwind romance will last a lifetime… Or at least a season.
In conclusion, Daphné Groeneveld is super cute.

I first discovered the work of acclaimed artist Yayoi Kusama in 2009 at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The retrospective, Mirrored Years, blew me away, or rather transported me into the dotty, wavy, divine madness that is her world. Unsurprisingly, Kusama takes no inspiration from our world; instead her work comes from deep inside the mind of a complex, self-admitted resident of a mental health facility in Japan, where she has lived since the 1970s.
The 83 year old’s work is no stranger to international praise, however it was her signature dot motif which earned her a place at Louis Vuitton. The powerhouse brand recently collaborated with Kusama to form a collection of luxury goods. Glasses, bags, shoes, trench coats, pijamas – leave it to Marc Jacobs to see an offbeat opportunity for creating beautiful things.
Appreciate Yayoi Kusama through the eyes of Jacobs here.
